We are looking for skilled writers to tell our stories
Cancer Society - Wellington Division

Estimated Time: 3 - 5 Hours Over 1 - 3 Months

We are seeking a volunteer with great writing skills who can help us capture stories of our volunteers. People who choose to volunteer for the Cancer Society have a rich and interesting story to tell around what makes them want to volunteer for us, what are their drivers for volunteering and what they get out of it. We feel it is important to capture these stories to acknowledge the person and to showcase what volunteers in your local community do. The work of volunteers is not promoted as much as it can be and with this role we hope to do this more deliberately and share well written and engaging stories of Cancer Society Volunteers.
